Yes, I AM Trainable! :)


Saturday, May 18, 2013

I haven't heard from my 'friend' Jane for almost 2 wks. Hmmmm.

On one hand I'm soooooo relieved that my carpool stress is gone. emoticon It's funny how sometimes I don't really realize how much something is bothering me until it's gone!
My family noticed that I'm way less stressed and happier. That makes THEM less stressed and happier!

On the other hand, I'm sad to realize that she only wanted to be my friend for what I could do for her. Well, maybe not totally, but it was the major part of our 'friendship' for her. I feel USED. emoticon

I'm also feeling proud that I stood up for myself tactfully and diplomatically, but also directly and got out of the situation and did it gracefully. Yes- I'm trainable!!! emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for the update, I was wondering about your friend. I am so proud of you! You did so well. Perhaps you should call and invite her somewhere only ONCE. In case she is feeling embarrassed? And then let that be your indication about what the future of this friendship is.
If she dodges it, then just walk away. There is no point in beating a dead horse.
Good for you PATTY!

    I think you did the right thing. There is a chance she's embarrassed although there is also a chance she's not happy that you messed up her carpool idea. Either way, you did the right thing. emoticon
